Description

Taken during a morning hike in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado at an elevation of about 11,000 feet: When I first arrived at this location along the trail, the entire area was completely in the shade and it was bitter cold. Then - within about two minutes - the light of the morning sun burst over the ridgeline of the mountain and flooded the trees and fall colored bushes with intense light from behind, while the background stayed almost invisible in the dark shade. The stunning backlit scenery felt like looking at a painting. Truly special.
